The Mastering the Electronic Health Record (EHR) course is a 10-week intermediate preparatory course consisting of weekly review, assignments, exercises, and quizzes to test your understanding of the material presented. Course-takers will have an understanding of the learning outcomes for each chapter, implore skill-building techniques through exercises designed to navigate you through the EHR program, learn about current topics in health care, and develop critical-thinking skills through comprehension of applied concepts of using an EHR and testing those skills through the online exercises and activities provided.

Supplemental teaching materials for each chapter are provided in PDF. In addition, a student Q&A forum for this course is provided and will be moderated by instructor Candace Carlstrom.

Two chapters (11 and 12) in Electronic Health Records, 3rd Edition, not included in this 10-week course provide additional knowledge reinforcement of and practice with navigation and functionality of EHR screens that course-takers may complete on their own.
